The beach next to the hotel is very nice and clean, property is off Pondicherry town. We had a suite which was good sized and 2 ac's kept the heat out. However the service and attitude of staff was very poor and there are only limited dishes on the menu. The food however was good. I had my pet Labrador... More

Having a small dog (pug) who is unaccustomed to living without one of us, we were enticed by various lists out of the web that ranks Dune Eco Beach Hotel as one of the most pet-friendly hotels in India. However as we found, their attitude towards pets can only be described as nonchalance. We called them and received a discounted... More

Pretty good place to relax and unwind as it is close to the beach and the resort theme is eco-friendly. The service is appalling, the staff hardly have a smile on their face. The food is pretty bad and they are neither good at continental or local cuisine. Pros: Location, rooms and Eco-friendly theme. Cons: Service, food and staff.

The service was... More

Nice Place, Bit Rigid about rules. Over Priced for the product which is being offered. In summers you need an AC room. The amenities in the room could be increased. Overall a nice experience. Good atmosphere.
